I second the idea that speaking with the local police department about any concerns you may have is always a good idea.

Also talking to the neighbors will give you an framework of their perceptions living on those streets for some time.

The local alderman is a good contact because you will have a connection for handling ideas for improvement and any issues that may affect your neighborhood.

Check out the city website, too, for information on recycling, garbage, local ordiances, etc. There are also links to local events such as fireworks displays. http://www.ci.kingston.ny.us/

For median home sale prices zillow.com is a good place to start. The information may be slightly older than that of your local real estate professional.

Enjoy your new home!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Has always been crime there depending on neighborhood and can vary quickly. Bought a house in a good neighborhood and within 2 years, the place had become a drug haven with single family homes turned into single room occupancy-sold our house (for a profit) and got out.
